On war and peace

O dear friend, why do you hate? Why do you give yourself to anger? Why, do you not realize how harmful they are?

What did our beloved Jesus say? Love thy neighbor. That was the call. That was what was said. Why then do you strive to hate your brother?

Love is God. Let the love of God flow through you, as it did in our dear saints Francis and Chaitanya. Verily become an instrument of the mercy and peace of the Lord, and finding love within, you would see nothing but love outside.

Thus, annihilate yourself. Become love personified. Eschew hatred. Liberation will be yours for the taking. You would have conquered all that there is.
